Kind Words

I seriously cannot thank Matthew enough for capturing my baby bump on camera.

His work is always so beautifully natural and he always respects what you as a customer has in mind.  I can’t wait to look back at these pictures when my baby is born and relive how special I felt, this is all thanks to Matthew and the memories he has photographed that I will cherish for life.

Matthew captures life in a photograph and this is why I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you once again!


As a family we have been extremely fortunate to benefit from the exceptional photographic service provided by Matthew Owen Photography. The photographs Matthew has captured of my two young children are without any doubt my most prized photographs. As anyone with young children can appreciate taking a photograph that really captures your child’s true personality is a rarity but it seems something that Matthew can do with ease. I have such fantastic photographs that have truly captured the essence of my children’s cheeky characters.
Having recently renovated our house it was still not quite feeling like home. After a shoot with Matthew I order a number of prints (because I couldn’t decide on one!!) and they now have pride of place in our lounge area. It has transformed the room into finally feeling like home. We have receive many glowing comments from family and friends who have visited.
Matt had obviously spent a considerable amount of time planning our portrait session. The numerous props, advise on clothing really paid off when I look at my stunning photos following. They literally reduced me to tears.
For anyone considering arranging a family photo shoot I cannot recommend Matthew highly enough. My advice though is to get the tissues ready for the viewing and set aside a considerable amount of time to select the ones you want. It is one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make!

We love the collection of photographs that Matthew has created for us! The service we have received has been professional and organised from the very beginning.  His photographs brought our restaurant to life, and showed us the true beauty of what we have created.

We would definitely recommend Matthew, and hopefully we will do business with him again.

We have been absolutely thrilled with the service provided by Matthew and Carole. The photographs were even more beautiful than we could have imagined, and the essence of the day was captured just perfectly. The style of the photographs were perfect for us: creative yet informal, focusing on love, friends and family.


Thank you so much, we are over the moon.

Working with Matthew was a great experience, he was extremely organised and knowledgeable about the kind of images I was looking to get for my business. I absolutely love the finished pictures, they reflect my work perfectly and are so much more than I imagined they would be.

I couldn’t have asked for anything better and I will be using Matthew for any work I need photographing in the future!

The best piece of advice I can give for any bride and groom to be is choose a photographer who you feel comfortable with, we certainly did this when it came to choosing Matthew.  Not only that, it felt natural and the pictures were like nothing we could have imagined.

All our guests still comment on how happy and natural each picture is – which is why we would, and have, strongly recommended Matthew.

Claire & Matt

Matthew had a long, complex and busy day photographing our range of British cured meats for use in our marketing and also for use on our own e-shop and e-commerce partner sites in both ‘lifestyle’ and ‘cut out’ formats. We are extremely pleased with the results and Matthew proved very easy to work with through planning and executing the day.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Matthew both in terms of the photography and in his direct, friendly and thorough approach to arranging the details of the shoot and ascertaining and delivering on the desired outcomes.
